~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Open up a new canvas
600px x 600px.
Flood fill with white

Open up Frame1
Scaled down to 65%
Duplicate it twice so there are 3 frames.
Leave the top one alone
on the second one rotate it -25 degrees.
Now using your move tool (V)
Nudge the image to the left.
To do this just tap your left mouse button.
I did it 55 times.

On the bottom frame rotate it 25 degrees
And then nudge it to the right the same amount of times as you did the other.

Open paper1
Resize to 600px by 600px
copy and past onto your canvas.
Move below your frames.
Use your magic wand and select inside each of the three frames
Select ---> Modify ---> Expand, by 5
Invert your selection and on the paper layer invert and press delete.

Now go to your closeup of your tube and copy and paste it into your canvas.
Have this between your frames and your paper background for them.
Move it to the position you'd like.
Once you're hapy with the size and position erase any extra pieces that are outside the frame.
Duplicate this layer.
On the bottom one change the blend mode to luminosity, opacity at 75%
On the top one go to Filter ---> Blur ---> Gaussian Blur, raidus of 5.
Then change the blend mode to overlay, opacity at 20%.

Now hide all but the frame layers except the straight up and down one.
Copy and paste the more full body tube layer to your canvas.
Resize and position to your liking and then duplicate this layer.
Drag one below all of your frame.
Erase any parts that are outside of them and add a drop shadow.
To the top tube layer, erase any parts that are over the top of the frames that you don't want to be.

Then go
Filter ---> Xero ---> Porcelain
All at default except the blue channel, have it all the way to 0

Filter ---> Xero ---> Radiance
Do something subtle here that just brightens the tube back up.

Filter ---> Sharpen ---> Unsharp Mask
All at default settings.

Now bring all your frame layers back visible.
Merge the three together and add a drop shadow.

Open paper12
Resize to 600px by 600px.
Copy and paste into your canvas and drag this layer to just above the white background
apply the mask to this layer.

Now we're just going to embellish the tag to our liking.
I did so with the following.

I added a dropshadow and resized to how I wanted them.

In this order.

~Below the frames but above the frame backgrounds~
Element12 (I erased just a bit on the end of this one)
Element 11 (this is rotated)
Element 11 (I duplicated the previous one and flipped it horizontally)

~Above the frames below the top witch tube layer~
Element 39
Element 37
Element 28

Add your name to your tag.

Image ---> Trim
Top left pixel color, all boxes checked.

Resize if you'd like to

*~*~*~*~Most Important!!!*~*~*~*~
Add your copyright info to your tag here.

If you're happy with your tag hide the white background layer and save as a .png to keep the transparency.

That's it!
You're done!!
I'd love to see any results from tags made with my tutorials so, please send them in!!
